Minimizing Simultaneous Heating and Cooling in Existing Laboratory Buildings with Reheat Systems

03/11/2013

If your building Heating, Ventilating and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) system is equipped with reheat, you can apply the techniques discussed here to identify and quantify the excessive heating and cooling energy associated with the system. You can also use the diagnostic and modification methods to minimize reheat and thus save money, energy, and greenhouse gas emissions. This “getting started” guide is primarily intended for energy and sustainability managers interested in addressing this efficiency opportunity. It is also informative for facilities staff responsible for laboratory HVAC systems, although it is not a detailed engineering manual. This “getting started” guide is primarily intended for energy and sustainability managers interested in addressing this efficiency opportunity.
